This is a question "You're doing it wrong"

Chthonic confesses: "Only last year did I discover why the lids of things in tubes have a recessed pointy bit built into them." Tell us about the facepalm moment when you realised you were doing something wrong.

not my story
but I will tell it anyway.

My friend was in Ibiza a few years back, he had spent the evening at Cafe Del Mar famed for its glorious sunsets. He then went out and - as you do partied hard, until it started to get light again.

Suddenly he had a great idea - lets see the Sunrise!

...at cafe del Mar.

So him and his friend walked off into the night, down to the beach and sat and waited outside Cafe del mar -which was now closed. They waited, and waited... it was getting lighter, so they waited a little more.

But there was no sunrise, they were met with a slightly dull blue horizon.

It took them a good hour to realise why there was no sunrise on that beach that morning.

** Edit: sorry for the lack of clarity

The sun sets infront of Cafe Del Mar. it rises on the other side of the island... not infront of Cafe Del Mar.

They were expecting to see the Sun re-emerge from the horizon from where it slipped down 8 hrs previous.

He blamed the drugs for not realising.

Let me get this straight
Were they not facing east? I don't understand how there can't be a sunrise.

exactly, the sun does not set and rise in the same place... like they believed.

Me too...
Did they accidently go at night? Where they wearing sunglasses?

Maybe cafe del Mar didn't have any windows.
Ooh! Or maybe it was the time of year when the sun never really sets. That's why they call Ibiza 'land of the midnight sun' after all.

Only Ibiza virgins don't realise that the best place to watch the sunrise is Play d'en Bossa beach. Preferably after a night dancing on the Space terrace.

You'll no more find a virgin in Ibiza than you will a generous person in Scotland.
